Ai Saeki from Fault!! (Wedding Version) (NSFW)

Ai Saeki from Fault!!

It’s a big month for figure releases but I’m still waiting for my Hobby Search box to arrive, so today we’ll look at an older figure: SkyTube’s Ai Saeki. This figure came out in Feburary of this year and it is, oddly enough, the third figure of Ai Saeki that Alphamax has produced; meanwhile, it appears that the twintailed tsundere Mio Sugiyama and the petite teacher Rika Hayama will get no love from figure makers. Indeed, Alphamax has a second version of this figure in the works, where Ai is wearing a black veil and underwear. I imagine this figure and the upcoming version will otherwise be the same.

Akane Ryuuzouji from Walkure Romanze More & More (Daiki Kougyou Version) (NSFW)

Akane Ryuuzouji from Walkure Romanze

We’ll resume our look at Daiki Kougyou’s Walkure Romanze girls with Akane Ryuuzouji. Oddly enough, Akane was not a principal character in the original visual novel, but her good looks and agreeable personality have made her a fan favorite. Another strange thing is that in the anime and the original game, she’s incorrigibly infatuated with Celia Cumani Aintree, to the point that she’s nonfunctional when proximate to her. Nonetheless, she has become popular enough to receive elevation to main character status in the fandiscs Walkure Romanze More & More and Re:tell, where she develops her relationship with main hero Takahiro Mizuno and, in the time-honored tradition of visual novel characters, has sex with him. So does her mom, actually.

Ayako Hiiragi from Walkure Romanze Re:tell (Daiki Kougyou Version) (NSFW)

Ayako Hiiragi figure

After looking at Bertille a few days ago, we’ll continue our examination of Daiki Kougyou’s Walkure Romanze figures by taking a look at Ayako, the elder girl of the series. This figure was released in July of 2017, after Celia, Mio, Bertille, and Akane, making her the most recent of Daiki’s lineup to be released. She was an odd candidate to receive a figure adaptation, being that she was very much an ancillary character in the original visual novel and anime, and lead girls Noel and Lisa hadn’t yet gotten figures (Noel will be getting a figure version early next year, whereas apparently nobody loves Lisa). That said, she actually got another figure, sold on Native’s store, which came out just the other week; that one is pretty lewd, with her having her ass way up in the air. I didn’t buy it, unfortunately, so this one will have to suffice.

Bertille Althusser from Walkure Romanze More & More (Daiki Kougyou Version) (NSFW)

Bertille Althusser from Walkure Romanze More & More

Daiki Kougyou’s figure of Noel Marres Ascot went up for preorder last week, fully half a decade after their Celia Cumani Aintree figure was released. Let’s take a look today at the hotheaded and aristocratic Bertille Althusser, the third figure to be released, way back in September of 2015.

Jin-Lian from T2 Art Girls (NSFW)

Jin-Lian from T2 Art Works

As good as Ping-Yi is, I felt that Jin-Lian would be the true prize of the series. With high expectations comes the possibility of bitter disappointment, but I felt that SkyTube could pull it off, seeing as how they have become one of the preeminent figure manufacturers in the hobby. And pull it off they did; after seeing Jin-Lian with my own eyes, I can confidently say that this is one of the best anime figures ever made.

Ping-Yi from T2 Art Girls (NSFW)

Ping-Yi figure

Apparently I haven’t reviewed a Tony Taka-designed figure since Freesia, which is confounding since I think I have at least a dozen Tony figures in hand and in the review queue. Clearly there is much work to do; we’ll start by taking a look at Ping Yi, a figure from SkyTube’s ostensible premium line.

Yayoi B. Lutwidge from Hapymaher (NSFW)

Yayoi B. Lutwidge from Hapymaher

Mangagamer released the English-language – and uncensored – version of Purple Software’s Hapymaher last week and being that this figure of Yayoi was released ten months ago, now seems as good a time as any to take a look at it. Another justification for doing this review is that Native recently released their own take on a heroine from another Purple Software game and though I skipped over that figure, it’s interesting to compare how these two characters turned out. And well, the quirky characteristics of this figure are reason enough to do this review now. I’d imagine we might not see another figure like this again.

Archeyle from Elf Village (NSFW)

Archeyle from Elf Village

Archeyle isn’t the first, nor the second or third, Vertex figure I’ve purchased but somehow it’s the first one to be reviewed here. Oddly, it’s also one of two half-naked blonde elf girl figures to be released at the end of July. You really can’t go wrong with happy, thong-wearing blonde elf archer girls … can you?

Oshitsuke from the Art of Ishikei (NSFW)

Oshitsuke from the Art of Ishikei

We have for our examination today the latest and greatest from those inscrutable minds at Rocket Boy and Native. Unfortunately this lady has no name, being that she is simply given the title OSHITSUKE; doubtless lowbrow observers will snicker at the phonology but true collectors are certainly possessed of more refined sensibilities. Her sobriquet is perhaps more properly rendered as Oshitsuke Musume, which means something like Pressing Girl, which of course is basically what she is doing, at least in one of her poses. We will just call her Oshitsuke today, which doesn’t really make much sense but it’s not our fault that Rocket Boy did not give her the dignity of a name.

Mai Shiranui from The King of Fighters XIV (Amakuni Version)

Mai Shiranui from The King of Fighters

Mai Shiranui has been a favorite muse for figure manufacturers for well over a decade now, and for good reason; she is one of the earliest female fighting game heroines and stars in one of the most long-running game franchises, with The King of Fighters celebrating its fourteenth core game release in 2016. Her exuberant personality and agreeable appearance are also obvious explanations for her enduring popularity. Curiously, she’s scheduled to get at least three – and perhaps four – figure releases this year; quite a respectable quantity for any character. One is a large 1/4 scale figure from Chinese maker Infinity Studio; it’s of rather unconventional design being that she appears far more realistic than the anime-style designs that have represented her since her Fatal Fury days. Another is an exorbitantly-priced 1/6 scale figure from Gantaku, which looks to be very much in the same style as Alphamax’s polystone figures, before they switched gears and become a purveyor of high-quality pornographic PVC figures. The third – which hasn’t been shown off yet – is one that will supposedly be done by Kinetiquettes based off of an illustration drawn by Stanley Lau. But of the ones that have been sculpted, this one – by Amakuni – is in my view the best of the group.
